Milton Kaiser is a quiet, unassuming individual, living in a small crossroads community in Kansas. No one thinks him a nerd, just a mild mannered family man who runs the country store. Milton is also the town Marshal, a part time job that has more title than substance.
Milton's life of near boredom takes an exciting turn when a local recluse is found dead from an apparant hunting accident and the Marshal is summoned to investigate the old man's death.
Milton soon receives harrassment from the local sheriff, he finds his wife is cheating on him and his store is burned to the ground, but Milton is stubborn and chases the truth, sorting out the puzzle behind the so called accident. He dispenses simple justice as he sees it, doing it Milton's Way.
